Ready for March Madness? Well, acclaimed basketball sportscaster Dick Vitale joins us on today’s show to talk about the teams that need to go in your bracket. That’s right after we start the show with Jon Najarian. If you are a frequent listener, you know that Jon was the co-founder of optionMONSTER. Well, he’s since sold the company. Jon currently focuses on wealth management with the Najarian Family Office. He joins us today with the latest on Wall Street and his stock tip of the week.

Listen, we know that you’re filling out your bracket when you should be working. We’re pretty sure that your boss is very aware of what you’re doing since it’s more than likely that he/she is doing the same. Well, fret not, because famed ESPN sportscaster Dick Vitale shares his picks for this year’s tournament. Tune in, fill out your bracket, and get back to work.

Later, Philippe Weiss of Seyfarth Shaw at Work has some great advice for the other side of the office during March Madness. You can’t suppress it, you can’t fight it, so you might as well go along with it. That’s Philippe’s advice for managers at this time of year. Believe it or not, March Madness can add a lot of vitality to the workplace – as long as you’re careful.

Andrew Herrmann of DNAinfo Chicago wraps up this episode with a look at the new Mariano’s in Bronzeville. You might be asking yourself what makes one Mariano’s more special than the others (aside from their sample sections). Well, this new location will feature a mural with the neighborhood’s history painted on the side of the wall. Andrew also takes a look at the sushi burrito.  Yep, a sushi burrito. It’s probably better if you just listen to this one.

We’ll have all that and more on this episode of the Wintrust Business Lunch!
